SEA Games: Ian Clark Bautista bags PH boxing’s second gold
MANILA, Philippines—Shortly after Rogen Ladon won gold, Ian Clark Bautista followed suit as the Philippine boxing team goes two-of-two so far in its gold medal bid at the 31st Southeast Asian Games on Sunday.
Bautista dominated Naing Latt of Myanmar with a 5-0 unanimous decision win in the men’s -57kg class at Bac Ninh Gymnasium in Vietnam.
Bautista was determined to claim the gold after settling for the bantamweight bronze in the 2019 SEA Games in Manila.
Earlier, Ladon earned a 3-2 split decision victory over Van Thao Tran of Vietnam.
Two Filipinos in Eumir Marcial and Irish Magno will vie for the gold in their respective categories.
